It should be installed on every standard system.

Koma is a very extensive addition to standard LaTeX which makes a lot  
of things much easier. It is fully backwards-compatible to the  
standard classes but offers a lot of additions like the additional  
commands for creating headings without numbering. Basically it does  
nothing that is not possible with the standard classes but makes a  
lot of things easier. (A lot of things could be mentioned, like a  
specialized letter class etc. pp.)
It is very popular among European users since it is much better  
adapted to the A4 (instead of letter) paper formats.
And it has a very good documentation. Try texdoc scrguien.pdf, that  
should open the english manual.
